    hmmm...perhaps fungal/bacterial? I had a similar problem on my Gongora galeata, where in was spraying it, but the moisture wasnt drying quick enough. Do you mist/keep it in the bathroom?

    it does look like a bacterial/fungus infection; cut the infected areas and treat them with a fungicide/bactericide/virucide. Treating the whole plant would be better. stop missting the plant for a few days until the cuts heal and if you are misting the plant, make sure it doesnt stay wet for too long

    Looks like water was left on the leaf (stayed wet) and that caused the problem. If you have cut off the problem area and treated the cut and plant, be sure to have a fan or good air movement around your orchid to keep this from occurring again. Good luck.

    cheers,
    BD

    Hi
    Thank you very much for your response.
    I just want to know how to use this product.
    The instruction is written in Thai and I don't know how to read.
    I just want to know how much of this liquid I need to add to 1 Liter of water.

    Hope someone can advise.
